Outbreaks from 2002 through 2006 recorded in a European norovirus surveillance database were investigated for virologic and epidemiologic indicators of food relatedness. The selection tool enabled prospectively focused follow-up. Use of this tool is likely to improve data quality and strain typing in current surveillance systems, which is necessary for identification of potential international foodborne outbreaks (a spreadsheet of this tool is also provided with this reference).

The Foodborne Outbreak Online Database has been designed to allow the public direct access to information on foodborne outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most outbreaks are reported to the National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS) by the state, local, territorial, or tribal health department that conducted the outbreak investigation. Outbreak reporting is voluntary. Multi-state outbreaks are generally reported to NORS by CDC.

These guidelines have been written for public health practitioners, food and health inspectors,
district and national medical officers, laboratory personnel and others who may undertake or
participate in the investigation and control of foodborne disease outbreaks.
While the book focuses on practical aspects of outbreak investigation and control, it also
provides generic guidance that can be adapted to individual countries and local requirements.
At the field level it will be valuable in initial epidemiological, environmental and laboratory
investigations, in implementation of appropriate control measures, and in alerting
investigators to the need to seek assistance for more complex situations. At national and
regional levels, the guidelines will assist decision-makers in identifying and coordinating
resources and in creating an environment appropriate for the successful management of
foodborne disease outbreaks.

These case studies are interactive exercises developed to teach epidemiologic principles and practices. They are based on real-life outbreaks and public health problems and were developed in collaboration with the original investigators and experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The case studies require students to apply their epidemiologic knowledge and skills to problems confronted by public health practitioners at the local, state, and national level every day.
Two types of epidemiologic case studies are available. The computer-based case studies can be used as self-study and in the classroom setting. The classroom case studies are primarily for use in a group setting with a knowledgeable instructor.

The Guidelines describes the overall approach to outbreaks of foodborne
diseases, including preparation, detection, investigation, control, and
follow-up. The Guidelines also describes the roles of all key organizations
involved in these outbreaks, provides recommendations for processes
to improve communication and coordination among multiple agencies
during multijurisdictional outbreaks, and identifies indicators that different
organizations can use to gauge their performance in responding to
foodborne disease outbreaks.
